  • The contest consists of ten live races held at Keeneland on Saturday, July 11, 2020.
  • Contestants must bet at least $400 per race in a total of at least FIVE races in Win, Place, Show, Double, Exacta and/or Trifecta wagers.
  • No Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, Pick 6, Superfecta or Super High 5 wagers are eligible for contest play.
  • The player with the largest bankroll BALANCE after the final race will be declared the winner.
  • There are no caps on payoffs, but payoffs which trigger IRS withholdings could result in a tax withholding situation. If that occurs the scoring system will give the player credit for the full amount of the wager.
  • In the unlikely circumstance that Keeneland live racing is canceled in full or in part, the following procedure will be followed:
    • If Keeneland has completed at least five races, the contest will be declared official and all prizes will be awarded.
    • If Keeneland has completed fewer than five races, the contest will be declared a no-contest and contestants will receive the amount of their existing bankrolls and entry fees will be refunded.
  • Collusion among players shall be grounds for immediate disqualification and forfeiture of all entry fees and tournament prizes. For more information, please see the Official Rules
